Superplasticizers are well known chemical admixtures for concrete used in the reduction of water to cement ratio without affecting workability, and to avoid particle aggregation in the concrete mixture. These are also known as high range water reducers (HRWR), fluidifiers, and dispersants as these are capable of reducing water to cement ratio by 40.0%. These chemical admixtures are added in the concrete just before the concrete is placed. These admixtures help to improve strength and flow characteristics of the concrete. Superplasticizers are essential sulfonic compounds attached to the polymer backbone at regular intervals. These can be added at a range of 0.15% to 3.0% of the weight of cement that is higher as compared to plasticizers. Flow characteristics and slump of concrete varies with type, dosage, and time of addition of concrete superplasticizer.

Superplasticizers can be classified into four types such as, Sulfonated melamine-formaldehyde condensates (SMF), Sulfonated naphthalene-formaldehyde condensates (SNF), Modified lignosulfonates (MLS), and Polycarboxylate derivatives (PC). The selection of concrete superplasticizer is based on the type of concrete used, namely ready mix, precast, high strength, high performance, self compacting, shotcrete, etc. The SMF, SNF, and MLS are very old but are still the highly consumed in today’s concrete applications. The only drawback with these concrete superplasticizer is high slump loss and not preferable in cold weather conditions that can be overcome with polycarboxylates. Polycarboxylates, with superior performance characteristics, are the new generation superplasticizers, capable of water reduction of up to 40.0%, and are also preferable in hot weather conditions.

The demand for these admixtures is influenced by the growing awareness of the ability to reduce water to cement ratio, where a different dosage reflects different performance. With the growing demand for construction industry the market for concrete superplasticizer is also expected to grow in the future. Superplasticizers are application specific and are available globally. There are different grades of superplasticizers available in the market among the above mentioned four types. These superplasticizers can be powder and liquid-based depending upon the end-user’s interest. Generally, liquid forms are used as it is difficult to mix the powder in the concrete.

Currently, superplasticizers are mainly concentrated in Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa (ME&A), followed by Europe and North America. The Asia-Pacific and ME&A markets are expected to grow at a higher rate in the future.

Superplasticizers are primarily used as concrete admixtures to manufacture high strength concrete in all applications. The choice of a superplasticizer is quite technical and depends on the end-user. Concrete superplasticizer exhibit high water reduction and high strength properties. These properties can be enhanced with an addition of different technologies within the same product to enlarge the characteristics from chemicals, or among chemicals within the same group. These superplasticizers make construction highly familiar and economical. The ability to withstand huge constructions at low costs makes superplasticizers efficient in several applications. There are five types of superplasticizers on a major scale, namely, SNF, SMF, MLS, PC, and others.

The concrete superplasticizer market is driven by the range of applications, which increases the R&D efforts to make superplasticizers highly resourceful, along with the huge demand from the infrastructure industry due to increased population that finds superplasticizers useful in a myriad of applications. Growing advancements and technological inventions in superplasticizers would be quite effective in the future. Superplasticizers have been well perceived in various dominant end-user markets in the last few decades and are expected to be used for green house buildings in the near future.

Globally, Asia-Pacific region dominated the concrete superplasticizer market revenue in 2012. China, India, Brazil, UAE, and U.S. are the major countries with a huge demand for superplasticizers. Asia-Pacific’s superplasticizers market for end-use applications is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2013 to 2018, which is far higher than that of North America.
